* ElChapulinColorado has no secret nor civil identity, and in one episode is ouright stated that Chapulín Colorado ''is'' his real and legal name. WordOfGod also says that he ditched any semblance of civil identity long time ago; he is El Chapulín Colorado full time. Because this is a HalfHourComedy AffectionateParody of superheroes, the implications are never explored.

* Played with on ''{{Cheers}}'' when Norm starts a small housepainting business and hires three guys to be his workers. The workers end up being lazy slackers and Norm is too nice to yell at them or fire them. He creates an imaginary persona for himself, "Anton Kreitzer" a mean, dictatorial BadBoss who only communicates through phone or through Norm to to get his workers to stop slacking off. He goes so far as to rent an empty office and hiring a secretary for Kreitzer. When the workers get angry and try to confront Kreitzer about his harsh treatment they find the empty office. They come to the conclusion that Norm the nice guy was fake and that Kreitzer is the real identity!

** One [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Age]] (i.e. after UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, but before the [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Crisis]]) story featured Superman getting infected by a Kryptonian disease. The disease causes hallucinations comprised of two figures, similar to a GoodAngelBadAngel, one of whom thought he should accept it because death comes to us all, while the other one insisted he had a duty to fight it off. The defeatist appeared as an empty suit with glasses hovering above it, and the fighter as an empty Superman costume. Both referred to him as "Kal" and to each other as "Clark" and "Superman". At the end he wakes up, insisting he invented both of them, and [[TakeAThirdOption neither are real]].

* In the Franchise/StarWars saga, [[BigBad Darth Sidious]] wears a dark hood over his head to hide his identity as Senator/Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine from his Separatist conspirators. However, the real mask here is Palpatine, whose kind and noble appearance is merely public facade to hide his true nature until he wipes out the Jedi Order and turns the Republic into an Empire. From that point onwards, the newly proclaimed [[EvilOverlord Emperor]] discards his Palpatine persona completely and becomes Sidious in both thought and action, wearing his cloaked hood full time despite no longer having any reason to use it anymore. Creator/IanMcDiarmid states that [[WordOfGod Lucas]] wanted Senator Palpatine's appearance in the Film/ThePhantomMenace to appear the most artificial, with the implication that his post-Force Lighting face from Film/RevengeOfTheSith isn't really his disfigurement but rather his real face all this time.

** In "The Beast Below", when believes his only choice is to either lobotomize the titular Beast to spare it pain or release it, killing the popluace of London riding on it through space, he says he'll have to find a new name because after that, he won't be The Doctor anymore. This theme is revisited in "The Day of the Doctor" with [[spoiler: The War Doctor, a regneration between his Ninth and Tenth, who had to do things in The Time War that he couldn't continue calling himself The Doctor /spoiler]]

* In the Franchise/StarWars saga, Senator/Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine wears a black hood that covers the upper levels of his face when assuming the persona of Darth Sidious, his secret identity. Or rather, his true identity. The benevolent and seemingly fair Palpatine is the true mask while the hooded Sidious is the true face of the man who later become [[BigBad the Galactic Emperor]] of the original trilogy. Ian Mcdiarmid states that [[WordOfGod Lucas]] wanted Senator Palpatine to be the most artificial of Palpatine's appearances, with his face disfigurement from the Force Lightning in Film/RevengeOfTheSith to be his real face.
